Iowa County Fair, Mineral Point

Labor Day weekend always means that the Iowa County Fair is going on in Mineral Point. This was taken yesterday morning during one of the Swine Showmanship classes. I always enjoy this part of the fair - no matter how much you have worked with these animals there is the chance of chaos, as pigs can be stubborn and feisty. Joel Sartore, a National Geographic photographer from Omaha, says that it is impossible to take a bad picture of a pig because of their nature and personality.
